The foreign minister tweeted that this process will be an opportunity for Cuban residents abroad to “enrich this uplifting law.”
“We are counting on their proposals and opinions to keep on strengthening our work of social justice,” he tweeted.
Director General for Consular Affairs and Cuban Residents Abroad at the Foreign Ministry, Ernesto Soberon, on Saturday announced that Cuban residents in over 140 countries will be able to participate in the discussion of the Family Code by sending their opinions to the Nación and Emigración (Nation and Emigration) website.
The diplomat said that something similar happened during the discussion of the current Constitution of the Republic, approved in April, 2019.
Opinions were received from over 120 countries via Internet, 40 percent of which were included in the final draft, Soberon noted.
Between February and April, 2022, Cuba will hold a referendum on a new Family Code bill in order to adapt this legal framework to the country’s social realities.
